Sketchfab is a beautiful repository of inspiring 3D designs. You can upload 3D models and embed them anywhere on the Web. No plug-ins are required to view your embedded models: Just HTML5.
With its tech-savvy foundations, it makes sense for Quora to have an official mobile app. I took it through its paces, and I’d be hard-pressed to say it blew me away.

Google has just announced powerful new photo editing features for all Google+ users. Filters such as Vintage, Drama, Retrolux and B&W can be applied via the browser, as can frames and tone adjustments.
A smartphone is a very personal device; I definitely wouldn’t want anyone fiddling around with my phone without my knowledge. Worse still, were anyone to steal the device, I wouldn’t want them to be able to access any of my data. That’s why I use a PIN code to lock my screen. That said, repeatedly typing my PIN code all day long can quickly become annoying — doubly so when I’m at home. Wouldn’t it be nice were my smartphone clever enough to automatically unlock itself whenever I’m at a safe place? That’s exactly what free app Safe Areas offers.
Color is important: We’re practically surrounded by it. Real-life objects are an obvious source of inspiration for color schemes, and it turns out that with an Android phone, it’s pretty easy to convert anything around you into a beautiful set of colors you can use on any design project. This is nice, because you can use specific objects to convey emotion: If you’re designing a theme for a blog that’s all about desserts, you could use a box of chocolates or a fancy cake as a very direct source of inspiration. Here are three apps to help you work with color on the go.
The moment you realize you can flash your Android phone with a new ROM is a pivotal one. Suddenly, you’re free: Endless customization options, no more vendor bloatware, and, best of all, you don’t have to wait for official updates. But that freedom can soon turn into confusion: There are just so many ROMs out there! Which should you pick? If you’ve never flashed a ROM before and are trying to figure out what’s the best ROM for your device, this is the post you’ve been looking for. I’ll be covering four of the most important ROMs available today, and then some.
There’s something about typing on a touchscreen that really brings out developers’ creativity. After all, they are no longer bound by the rigid constraints of plastic: Buttons become a recommendation, rather than a must. Suddenly you can swipe, slide, and glide, or dictate to your phone. Minuum is a radically different keyboard for Android that does away with the traditional notion of, well, a keyboard. As the thinking goes, your phone’s screen is first and foremost just that: A display.
This post is about a surprise; it’s about a comeback, and about how a determined company can listen, learn, and make something beautiful once again. It’s about the Sony Xperia Z, a premium, powerful, and waterproof Android smartphone that made me rethink what’s important to me about a phone. And if I sound enamored, well, you can read on to see what made a longtime Samsung user ditch the South Korean powerhouse for a Japanese giant.
Whatever alarm clock you’re using, it’s uglier than Timely. That’s a bold assertion to make, I know. But I’ve been using Gentle Alarm, one of the most powerful and versatile alarm clocks for Android, for over a year now — and we’ve also looked at other alarm clocks like DoubleTwist and Alarm Clock Xtreme. That’s why I feel confident in saying Timely, a relative newcomer, is probably the most elegant alarm clock available on Android right now.
Alarm clocks are fundamentally very simple things: They wait until the designated time, and then wreak havoc. Or so the basic concept goes, at least. But these simple alarm clocks all face an age-old problem: What if you switch them off an go back to sleep for “five more minutes” only to wake up hours later? Supposedly, you could use self control to solve this problem. But why use self control when you can use technology instead? Puzzle Alarm Clock pulls out all the stops in the snooze department: It’s absolutely determined to get you out of bed.
